EAGLE, Neb. (AP) — A 47-year-old motorcyclist has died in a crash involving a semitrailer in eastern Nebraska.

The Cass County Sheriff's Office tells the Lincoln Journal Star (http://bit.ly/2tV17r9 ) that the crash happened around 9 a.m. Friday on U.S. Highway 43.

Investigators say Chris Badman, of South Bend, was driving his motorcycle northbound when he hit a loaded flatbed semitrailer as it turned left.

Badman was pronounced dead at the scene.

The investigation into the crash continues.


The story has been corrected to show the crash happened at 9 a.m. Friday, not 9 p.m.
